. It's my favorite song (or songs, as the Beef Construction Song is included) from the 1974 Brian de Palma movie "Phantom of the Paradise", a Rocky-Horror-like musical comedy about an evil record producer and an unlucky composer. A quite silly mixture of Phantom of the Opera, Faust and Dorian Gray which features many in-movie stage shows, in this case the musical 'Faust' written by the ripped-off composer…
'Somebody Super Like You' by the in-film band 'Undead' is more or less an Alice Cooper spoof - other songs are different, ranging from Rock'n'Roll to Beach Sound to… whatever. The music is by Paul Williams who also featured as the evil, unaging producer Swan.
I guess that by now you already know it's one of my favorite musical movies
I recorded the soundtrack on tape while sitting in front of the TV set back in the early 80s, managed to get hold of the soundtrack CD only two weeks ago, and discovered yesterday that all song clips from the movie are available on Youtube.
Motto of the 54th Groove Bde.
